Most members of the organizing committee are members of the student council, which currently consists of about 30 students of all semesters ranging from undergraduates to PhDs.
We represent the physics students at our university and have close relations with our teaching personnel. Furthermore we organize events both related to science and social activities (e.g. visit of CERN). If you want to find out more about our organization please visit our website physik.htu.tugraz.at (german).
Participating in ICPS has a long tradition among physicists from Graz, especially among students from the Graz University of Technology www.tugraz.at, thus resulting in the wish to host the ICPS. As a former European Capital of Culture and a center of technology in Styria, Graz is a perfect setting for such an event.
